When it comes to travelling there’s one thing that pops into my mind more than anything, convenient, easy and simple makeup kits.
If you check out my Instagram I’m always on the road and I’m always exploring new and wonderful places. Throughout my time of travelling I have found many great makeup products which are great for on the go.
Packing for trips has always been my downfall I pack way too much stuff especially clothes. To compensate for the amount of clothes, shoes and accessories I try to downsize the makeup kits and products that I take in my ever so large makeup case.
For me some of the best makeup kits are the ones that have a great compact mirror (after all, how can you apply makeup without a mirror?).
From my experience dragging the hefty and bulky boxes that the products come is definitely not practical and takes up way too much space in a suitcase. I usually carry one of the boxes with me for the mirror or sometimes just pack a good compact mirror, probably the best option.
A great makeup case is a MUST I use a Cath Kidston one at present as its large but not too bulky. Of course the most important thing is that all your products fit inside.
There are many great products and kits out there but my all time favourites would be the Benefit kits – I particularly like the Brow Kit.
From the benefits line I think the Bigger & Bolder Brows Kit is by far the best Brow kit out there. Benefit really know how to show of them brows! It’s packed with all the products you would ever need to create amazing brows.
If you’re a dramatic eyebrow kinda gal then girl, I got you. The kit comes with Ka-Brow, which is an eyebrow cream probably my favourite out of the whole kit. This product sculpts, defines and creates effortless brows. Even better it comes with an eyebrow brush, 2 products in one.
Ready Set Brow! is also in the kit; a clear brow gel which shapes the brows perfect for day to day use especially if you don’t go for crazy brows throughout the week. I adore the highlighting pencil that comes with this kit.
This kit comes in a case with great colours and that wow factor feel. Take the products out and pop those in a makeup case and you’ve got yourself the perfect eye brow travel kit.
Tip: Use the pencil on the brow bone for an instant eye opening lift! Finally the kit comes with eyebrow stencils… What look will you go for?
I have yet to come across an amazing foundation in a makeup kit. I thought I would share with you my favourite foundation, The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation (I get the shade 8 Medium).
This is by far the best foundation I have ever used. It’s more expensive than the high street brands but totally worth it. The coverage is amazing and the foundation lasts all day even without a primer.
Cheeks have been something that I have never really applied makeup to but when I came across the Charlotte Tilbury 6 Shade of Love I instantly fell in love. For me the best one is Love Glow. This kit comes with its matching lipstick.
Sleek are an amazing high street in expensive brand and their eye shadow palette in Goodnight Sweetheart is by far the best in there range. This palette comes with 12 colours from sparkly pinks and nudes to warm browns. This palette probably has every colour you would ever need. Perfect for travelling.
Overall makeup kits are the best for travelling. There size and range of products are great for those trips away. No more bulky hefty makeup cases full of full size products!
